It's a #ThrowbackTuesday for Maxene Magalona as she posted a throwback video of her bonding with her father, Francis Magalona.
Compliments and nostalgia flooded Maxene's post on October 24, which featured a video of Francis introducing his daughter Maxene in a rap. The said clip also shows Maxene enjoying the moment with her dad.
Netizens called her a "daddy's girl" because of the heartwarming video. "Maxene is really happy when her father is around her," someone commented on Maxene's post.
While another described Maxene as an inspiring figure. "We all go through something in life and it's amazing that you still manage to inspire people," the comment read.
Maxene's post comes a week after an alleged love affair and the love child of her late father revealed themselves to the public. A woman named Abegail Rait claimed to have a 15-year-old daughter named Francesca Gail with the Pinoy rap icon.
"For fifteen years, nanahimik ako. Siguro naman ito na lang yung karapatan na puwede kong magawa para sa kanya," Abegail declared in a vlog.
Their revelation met mixed reactions from the public. Despite most people criticizing the controversy, Maxene's family has been silent about it.
On October 21, netizens believe that Maxene posted a cryptic message that pertained to the intriguing news surrounding their family. She reposted a quote on her Instagram saying, "Shout out to everyone who’s learning how to transmute sacred rage into acts of kindness."
Maxene often talks about trauma, self-care, and healing in her Instagram posts. She's also very vocal about her stance on parenthood, which she recently changed.
In a candid response to a fan's comment on Instagram back in July, Maxene revealed her newfound perspective on motherhood. "I actually didn't want a kid before," she admitted. "But as I matured, I really had to sit with myself and ask my soul if I truly wanted a child."
Maxene's decision wasn't influenced by societal expectations or the pressure to conform. Her new choice came after a deep reflection and a connection with her innermost desires. "I don't want to have kids just because everyone else is doing it," she emphasized. "I choose to move at my own pace."
